A: This has been my favorite game of the year. Losing to them the last two years has kicked us out of the SEC championship (race). Last year was extremely tough because it was the offense's fault. We had six turnovers. So we definitely have to limit our turnovers and hopefully it will be a closer game.

Q: Would a win in this game help the team gain confidence and start heading in the right direction?

A: Yeah, it's really big. If we win this, we still have a chance to win the East. We just want to get going and playing ball like we have been.

Q: How difficult is the road to Atlanta now?

A: It's extremely difficult. All we can do is beat Georgia and we'll see what happens after that with other teams losing and winning.

Q: Why do you think the offense has struggled in the past few games?

A: We've been in a little rut. We've played some pretty good defenses. We're just trying to get out of it, and hopefully we can before the Georgia game.

Q: The coaches talked about wanting to simplify the offense. In what ways has that happened?

A: Just doing the things we're good at. Running the pass patterns we're really good at and we know really well, and not putting too much new stuff in. And just doing all the runs that we're really comfortable with and know how to do.
